Use of Lichen as a Roosting Substrate by Perimyotis subflavus, the Tricolored Bat, in Nova Scotia
An apparently disjunct population of tricolored bats (Perimyotis subflavus) exists in southwest Nova Scotia and there is an apparently unique relationship between lichens and bats that likely impacts many aspects of the species biology, including distribution, social structure, and parasite prevalence.
Gamasine mite (Parasitiformes: Mesostigmata) infestations of small mammals (Mammalia: Rodentia, Insectivora) in Turkey.
The present study was conducted on small mammals from different locations in Turkey and found that Laelaps jettmari Vitzthum (72 species) was predominant and found mainly on Mus musculus (Linnaeus) and Cricetulus migratorius (Pallas).
The white-footed mouse harbored the most species of parasitic arthropods and new state records for Mississippi were established for the sucking louse Hoplopleura hirsuta, the bot Cuterebra americana, the laelapid mite Laelaps alaskensis, and the fleas Orchopeas pennsylvanicus and Peromyscopsylla scotti.
Bat Ectoparasites from the Trans-Pecos Region of Texas, Including Notes from Big Bend National Park
New ectoparasite records are given for hosts in seven instances and for the Trans-Pecos region of Texas in three instances.
Ectoparasites of Small Mammals in Western Iowa
Ectoparasite species richness was greatest for Blarina brevicauda (northern short-tailed shrew), Microtus ochrogaster (prairie vole), Peromyscus maniculatus (deer mouse), and PeromYScus leucopus (white-footed mouse).
New Ectoparasite Records for Bats in West Virginia and a Review of Previous Records
This is the first report of parasites from either bat in West Virginia, and each ectoparasite species collected represents a new state host locality record, with C. desultorius and O. kelleyi being new state records.
Arthropods and Fire Within the Biologically Diverse Longleaf Pine Ecosystem
Abstract The longleaf pine Pinus palustris Miller (Pinales: Pinaceae) ecosystem once covered as many as 37 million hectares across the southeastern United States. Through fire suppression,
Parasites of Southern Short-Tailed Shrews, Blarina carolinensis (Mammalia: Eulipotyphla: Soricidae) from Arkansas and Oklahoma, U.S.A.
A new host is recorded and 9 new distributional records are recorded, and the first records of helminth parasites from any shrew from Arkansas or Oklahoma are recorded.
